Congratulations go to both our Junior and Chamber RSD choirs for their success at the Dungannon Speech and Music Festival. The festival ran from Monday 5th – Wednesday 14th March. Both choirs were placed first in their categories.

The Junior Choir won the Dickson Shield with an impressive score of 87 marks. They performed ‘Aya Ngena’ and ‘Best Day of my Life’ Adjudicator, Jonathan Rea commented on their performance, “Ambitious and challenging repertoire embracing different cultures, which is good. Use of soloist was consistently good. Evident dynamic shaping alongside appropriate energy. Intonation was secure at all times. Lots of great musical things happening here – keep at it!”

It is superb to have such wonderful encouragement in feedback too, congratulations to all involved.
